Sci­ence has spo­ken — the next time you need to de-stress af­ter hav­ing an ar­gu­ment with some­one, all you need do is find the clos­est room with blue light­ing. Span­ish re­searchers have proven, af­ter an ob­jec­tive eval­u­a­tion, that blue light­ing dra­mat­i­cally en­cour­ages re­lax­ation af­ter short-term psy­cho­log­i­cal stress (like the stress you feel when pres­sured to com­plete a task, or af­ter a fight with a loved one). In the study, par­tic­i­pants with high stress lev­els were made to lie down in a room with white light­ing or in a room with blue. The lat­ter was found to re­duce bio-sig­nals — heart rate and brain ac­tiv­ity — much faster than white light. Other than find­ing use in clin­i­cal en­vi­ron­ments, the re­searchers hope that this in­for­ma­tion will help reg­u­lar civil­ians “in daily-life con­text”.
